Best Time to Visit – Madagascar
September to November is a lovely time to be on the beach. The cool, dry months, from May to October, are best for hiking. However, the coldest months, June to September, are not as good to see some animals. The shoulder months (April, May, October and November) are best for serious wildlife viewing. January and February, the height of the Wet season, is best avoided.
May to October –Dry Season –Winter
November to April –Wet Season –Summer
Best Time to Go to Madagascar by Major Park
Most parks offer year-round wildlife viewing. Parks such as Andasibe-Mantadia, Ranomafana and Masoala, located in the central highlands and on the east coast, are at their best April, May, October and November. At this time it doesn’t rain too much, and wildlife viewing is at its peak. The dry southwest, including Berenty PR, tends to be very hot from December to March, so is best visited from April to November.
